* InstrumentOfMurder: Friar Tuck and Alan-a-Dale use Alan's lute as a bow. In this case though, it's more to pop a balloon than to kill someone.

** Stealing from the poor in front of Friar Tuck is already a bad enough idea in and of itself, but you really ''do not'' want to take from the poor box ''in his own church'' while he's watching. [[BadassPreacher He won't take it well at all.]]

* {{Balloonacy}}: Sir Hiss sticks his head inside a balloon, then exhales more air from his lungs into it, causing it to ascend. Then he uses his tail as a propellor to fly around and spy on Robin Hood. He is somehow able to seal the balloon around his neck, and avoid suffocation, and use regular air to make both the balloon and himself float. Balloonacy on so many levels.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The townspeople's appraisals of John as the "Phony King of England" do ''not'' sit well with the Prince, and in retaliation he enforces even more aggressive taxes and the arrest of all those who fail to pay. The good people of Nottingham were most certainly not singing by the time he was done.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Trigger keeps pointing his crossbow at the Sheriff. It also has a tendency to randomly go off even when the safety is on. Eventually the Sheriff gets smart about this and insists that Trigger walk ahead of him when he's carrying the crossbow.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The overall film is light-hearted and comedic... until the third act of the film where the Sheriff arrests all of the villagers of Nottingham including the children. Yes, all of them. Also, there are some violent moments particularly with Prince John such as planning to hang Friar Tuck by using him as bait to capture Robin Hood.

* DisguisedInDrag: Robin Hood and Little John both pulled this trick at the beginning, stealing everything valuable that wasn't nailed down after Prince John dismissed the notion of female bandits as "rubbish". Robin was good at it, Little John...not so much; his cover would have been blown if he spoke to anyone up-close.[[labelnote:Useless trivia]]Robin's voice actor, Brian Bedford, performed in drag after Robin Hood's theatrical release. He probably did so before the film too, given that his female voice is fairly convincing.[[/labelnote]]

** Near the beginning, when Robin and Little John are disguised as women, Robin keeps Little John from running away by pushing him ''by his false breasts''.
** A male rhino guard is shown to clearly be ''checking out Little John's butt'' while he's in drag.

** Trigger and Nutsy are the only villains that weren't arrested. Given that [[JustFollowingOrders they weren't abusing their power]] like John, Hiss, and the Sheriff were, this shouldn't be a surprise. They're seen guarding the imprisoned John, Hiss, and the Sheriff for King Richard at the end, so it's clear they just do their job no matter who's on the throne. Either that or they did a HeelFaceTurn.

* PunchClockVillain: The Sheriff of Nottingham often attempts to invoke this, whenever anyone who calls him out on his ruthless tax collecting, but even in the beginning when he arguably has a case about only doing what Prince John orders him to do, he ''clearly'' enjoys depriving people of what little money they have far too much. It isn't long before he shows he's just a sadistic jerk. The other guards, like Nutsy and Trigger, have a stronger case for it.

* RightBehindMe: The Sheriff and Sir Hiss are having a good laugh over the song "The Phony King of England" when Prince John enters the room. Hiss immediately starts singing lyrics praising PJ before the Sheriff corrects him ("... the ''sniveling'', '''''groveling''''' --"). PJ throws a wine bottle at him.

* ShootTheBullet: In the archery competition, the sheriff has just scored a bullseye (by cheating). To make sure Robin (in disguise) can't win, the sheriff taps Robin's bow as he releases. The arrow goes in a high arc. Undaunted, Robin nocks another arrow and fires at the first arrow. It hits, changing its direction such that it too hits a perfect bullseye, ''right through the sheriff's arrow.''
